Jack McDevitt's Chindi is your basic human-alien-contact story. These kind of stories often include Big Dumb Objects. Chindi adds in a large number of Small Dumb Objects, too.

The book is fun. There's a good balance of action and exploration. There are plenty of unanswered questions. (Maybe too many.) The beginning drags a bit to develop the characters, but it pays off later in the story. Still, it could have been handled more smoothly. Overall, a good read.
